BIG RAPIDS – Ferris alumnus, Edward Lunt and his wife, Kathleen, thought providing scholarship opportunities for students in financial need was a great idea. So, they created the Kathleen M. and Edward A. Lunt Scholarship Endowment.
With state funding on the decline and rising tuition costs, the Lunts understand how important financial aid can be for a student.
“This was a great way for my wife and I to help someone else in need…a student who needs funding to get through school,” said Edward, who is a 1964 graduate of Ferris’ College of Business and president of Adventure Golf Development, located in Midland.
More than 83 percent of Ferris students receive some form of financial aid in order to attend the University.
“Ferris State University has a long way to go in securing more need-based dollars for our students,” said Richard Duffett, executive director of The Ferris Foundation. “Thankfully, the Lunts are helping us with our goal of securing more for our students who truly have a financial barrier to attending college.”
